Interesting, an RAF C17 Globemaster going from Belize to Macdill Afb to Bermuda. Wonder what's going on there just before the holidays.

Thanks for the links.

This one is interesting... Why is a RAF C-17 coming all the way over here to go to:

RAF Brize Norton - Norfolk Naval Station
Norfolk NS - Belize
Belize - MacDill
MacDill - Bermuda

And, why didn't the HFGCS ground station reply? Maybe could've been in the skip zone and didn't hear the aircraft.

This one is interesting in deed. It's a big aircraft. Someone is moving something. Even if it was configured for PAX, that is a whole lot of people or combination of people and equipment. They would use commercial or an Airbus to move people home for the holidays.

You are most likely correct about the skip zone. MAIN SAIL was weak barely readable to me. They may have changed to a discrete frequency and I did not hear it.
